Vote to name the gnome!
First Gen Nebraska has a new mascot – a gnome. Before he can start his new role representing FGN, he needs a name. Last week, we collected name suggestions. Now, it’s time to pick the final name.
Vote here to name the gnome by midnight on November 3rd!

Don’t forget – the First Generation Student Organization meets every two weeks.
Upcoming meetings: November 9th and December 7th
